An Interesting Fact

From Mark Pazdur, Publisher of Executive Golfer Magazine ….The average number of ball marks made on a green per round is eight per amateur golfer. Assuming only 130 rounds are played on any given day, the course is bombarded with 1,040 ball marks per day or 31,000 per month – or even more scary, 374,000 per year! Pay it forward and fix yours and one other every time you are on the green.

“Ask yourself how many shots you would have saved if you never lost your temper, never got down on yourself, always developed a strategy before you hit, and always played within your capabilities.”
- Jack Nicklaus

Drew's Tip Of The Month

"Hold On, This Will Come In Handy"
Nearly 85 percent of the golf balls initial start direction is determined by the position of the clubface when the ball leaves it and in wet conditions, that increases to 95 percent. So, what controls the clubface? For the right-handed golfer, the Left Hand and how it is placed on the grip of the club controls the clubface. Try this… hold the club with just your left hand and rotate it back and forth.  Any movement by the left hand makes the same corresponding movement with the clubface.
To place your left hand properly on the grip, it should be placed in its most natural position, where your left palm faces the left thigh, just as it would if you let your left arm hang naturally from your shoulder without any tension. Unfortunately, most golfers don’t do this and are then forced to make compensations in their swing.
Use these keys to check you grip: Both hands touch one another: interlock, overlap or ten finger grips are all appropriate. You should see approximately two to three knuckles on your left hand when you look down and no left-hand fingertips. Think of the grip as a clock with 12:00 on the top of the grip. The left thumb is placed on the back side of the grip at about a 1:30 or 2:00 position. For the right hand, place the club in the fingers and the pocket on the right palm or lifeline of your righthand fits over the left thumb. Be firm with the last three fingers of you left hand and the middle two of your right hand. The thumbs and index fingers of both hands are very soft.  This allows the wrists to be soft and to act as a “free hinge”. We want strong fingers, but flexible wrists. Minor grip adjustments can be made to correct for ball flight, such as rotating your grip clockwise to correct for a slice, but don’t deviate too far. If your grip is correct and the ball is still not flying in the desired direction, the problem lies elsewhere.
